Constitution Party on Education

 

 


Tax relief for families whose children not in public school

We support the unimpeded right of parents to provide for the education of their children in the manner they deem best, including home, private or religious. All legislation that would interfere with or restrict that liberty should be opposed. Equitable tax relief for families whose children do not attend government schools should be provided for. Compulsory attendance laws should be repealed.

WE CALL FOR THE ELIMINATION OF THE FEDERAL DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION.

There is no Constitutional provision that empowers the federal government to provide for and regulate the education of our children. All current federal legislation related to education should be repealed. No new federal laws subsidizing or regulating education should be enacted.

Support non-traditional charters, Christian schools & more

We affirm the free market principles which drive improvement of education through non-traditional options such as internet-based schools, charter schools, Christian and private schools, as well as home schooling options.

WE CALL FOR THE ELIMINATION OF THE FEDERAL DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION: There is no Constitutional provision that empowers the federal government to provide for and regulate the education of our children. All current federal legislation related to education should be repealed.

Education cannot be separated from religious faith

All teaching is related to basic assumptions about God and man. Education as a whole, therefore, cannot be separated from religious faith. The law of our Creator assigns the authority and responsibility of educating children to their parents. Education should be free from all federal government subsidies, including vouchers, tax incentives, and loans, except with respect to veterans.

Vouchers are a government subsidy; end them all

Education should be free from all federal government subsidies, including vouchers, tax incentives, and loans, except with respect to veterans.
